We are living in a time where there are increasing tragedies. From school shootings to hurricanes and so much more it can quickly get overwhelming. In fact, it’s getting to a point that every time you turn on the tv, radio, or go out in public you will hear about something tragic happening. As moms, it can be tempting to shield our children from any of this. However, I want to talk to you about how to talk to kids about tragedy.
My daughter just finished coming to me for help. She decided her bear needing more stuffing. However, she couldn’t figure out where she was having problems with her needle and thread. After a quick adjustment, she was able to sew her bear back up and feel a huge sense of accomplishment. It got me thinking. There are life skill kids should have so they can feel confident when they move out one day. I am going to share a few life skills I think kids should have and resources to help them learn them.
10 Life Skills Kids Should Have
My kids love art. They love to draw and create beautiful things. I am ok at teaching them some of it but sometimes I like to let them learn from someone else. There are some fun learn to draw books out there. However, my kids are visual learners and need to be able to see the art project in process. We have started using Youtube to get them more art tutorials without buying a new art curriculum. I decided to put together a list of 5 art YouTube channels for kids in case you want to use YouTube as part of your child’s art curriculum or just for fun.
